These delicious chocolate peanut butter energy bites make a great grab-and-go snack and come in super handy when you need a pick-me-up after a workout or a long day at work.

The recipe is quick and easy, requiring just 10 minutes and 5 ingredients. Stir all the ingredients together until combined, pop the mixture in the fridge for 15-20 minutes and then roll it into balls.

To form the balls I used half tablespoon measuring spoon, that gives me 2.5 cm (1 inch) energy bites. But you can make them smaller or larger.

Energy bites are very versatile and can be customized to suit your taste or with whatever you have on hand.

✔ peanut butter → almond butter, sunflower butter, or cashew butter

✔ raw cacao powder → unsweetened cocoa powder

✔ honey  → agave or maple syrup to make them vegan

✔ old fashioned oats → gluten free oats

✔ chia seeds → hemp seeds

You can also add chocolate chips, dried cranberries, goji berries, etc. or roll the balls in shredded coconut. The options are endless! Play around with flavors and create your personal favorite energy bites.

If you do change these up try to keep the wet to dry ratios close to the recipe. If the mixture is too crumbly add more wet ingredients (honey or peanut butter), if it’s too wet add more dry ingredients (cacao powder or oats).

Store the balls in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to a week.

  1. Can these be frozen?

  2. Can I use flaxseeds instead of chia seeds? I only have organic instant oatmeal right now, would that work? Thank you.
